The fact that Bennet and his wive are virulent anti-Abortion activists is not enough to have you to admit how unlikely such an event is likely to happen under him as you said little about the ABORTION DOCTOR in Arkansas who offered to abort Black babies for free. The Black people coming out of New Orleans had enough to deal with - why deal with a kid? Too much of a hasle. Right?

The sad part about it is TWO PARTS: 1) So many of us PROVE THEM WRONG - per the incidents in Milwaukee, DC and where the beatdown took place and worst of all 2) Black people like YOU will go out of their way to DEFEND them. They will begin to understand how things work. They do whatever and then count on the "Slavery Did It" crowd like you to defend their actions. The SAMBO music that put forth certain messages only reinforces this. Kevin - Let me ask you - which FORCE do you think plays a...

Uppity Negress, Blacks maintained SOCIALLY conservative views during our advancement, not POLITICALLY conservative views.

The other relates to politics and policies such as repeals on AA that has always worked adversely against blacks...and if you ever look at what the black majority believes in, the political conservatives are diametrically opposed to it 100% of the time.

OK, I see the how you distinguish the two, although there does seem to be a bit of gray area. For example, is being anti-homosexual a social or poltical issues? It seems social, IMO, but if the last wave of election count for anything, the right sure played it like a political issue. You say that political conservatives are diametrically opossed to the Black majority. The only issues I can think of now are AA and death penalty reform. What are the others?

NO! It is exactly that unbalance relationship that leads to a stalled, halted or forsaken "dialogue." Arguably, people could say Dr. King and Pres. Lydon Johnson started a "dialogue." For sure, a number of common folk or community leaders, mostly educators and religious leaders have had "dialogues." But hardly any thing that can be regarded as a serious "dialogue" where it counts, in the halls of power. As for Clinton's deal, you can research and look for opinions about that "conversation".
